It is becoming increasingly common in a cappella and barbershop music circles to use the fifth voice as vocal percussionist, with the remainder being a traditional SATB ( soprano alto tenor bass ) quartet, or perhaps SSAA or TTBB. [ citation needed ]

He is currently Head of Jazz at the New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University Wellington. Mark, a very old friend of the Club, tells me the music featured tonight will be a mix of original compositions with some jazz standards, featuring in particular material from the CD’s 'Shadowbird' and 'Tales From The Diaspora'. The music, as he describes it "is strongly influenced by the music of Kenny Wheeler and John Taylor but also has a strong Afro-Cuban tinge". His world-class group features two young upcoming UK musicians, saxophonist Matt Anderson and drummer Sam Gardner along with one of the most highly regarded bass players on the UK jazz scene, Steve Watts . A rare opportunity to hear this fine musician with his own band.

The first CD produced by the American Horn Quartet includes the "Fanfare for Barcs", "Casbah of Tetouan", "Quartet Nr. 1" and "Quartet Nr. 2, Americana" by Kerry Turner. Also on this CD is Langley's "Quartet for Horns" and "Fripperies" 1 through 8 by Lowell Shaw. With guest artists Andrew Hale (horn) and Bonnie Adelson (drum).

Critics Richard Cook and Brian Morton awarded the album 4 out of 5 stars in Penguin Guide to Jazz . Scott Yanow from Allmusic only gave the album 3 out of 5 stars, and stated it was "one of the most obscure of [Davis'] Prestige recordings", but its quality is still "fairly high". He named "Dr. Jackle" and "Minor March" as his highlights. [6]
